CLAYTON, Co. (WAOK)-A Clayton County man is in jail facing charges in the death of his baby boy.  The 1-year-old boy died from serious injuries after police say he was beaten to death.   

Clayton County police say 34 year old Ryan Edwards faces charges of child cruelty and aggravated battery in the death of his 13 month old son Mikkah. The child’s mother Toni Brown made the decision to remove her child from life support Monday  night.

Brown says she returned home Friday after work to find the baby unresponsive after leaving him in the care of his father. She took the child to an urgent care facility near her Morrow home.   Mikkah was transferred to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston.

Edwards is being held in Clayton County jail. Investigators said more charges are pending.
